Steve Jobs introduces the iCloud, plus golden phrases

Watch one of Steve Job´s last presentations introducing the concept of iCloud to an enthusiastic audience. Before watching the video, make sure you understand the meaning of "hub" and "digital hub", which appear several times along his presentation.

Some golden phrases, Steve Job´s style:

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

“There’s a phrase in Buddhism, ‘Beginner’s mind.’ It’s wonderful to have a beginner’s mind.”
“We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.”

“I’m the only person I know that’s lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year…. It’s very character-building.”

“I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.”

“We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
